A Garmin For Fishermen This Father’s Day ~ 21 June 2015 ~

This Father’s Day, look no further than Garmin’s range of marine gadgets that are enough to get even the most traditional fishermen hooked on fishing technology.

Garmin’s fishing products are designed for those who demand quality and precision. With a focus on ease of operation and feature integration, Garmin’s innovative fishing products will make an ideal present for all types of fishermen this Father’s Day.

echoMAP series, with Integrated Scanning Sonar

Garmin’s echoMAP series (RRP from £299.99) integrates scanning and sonar capabilities with a user-friendly interface and built-in cartography.

Echo thing

The echoMAP series has precision scanning sonar technology built directly into the chartplotter, which not only gives you the clearest scanning sonar on the market but also means there is no need for an additional black box.

The series features Garmin HD-ID™ sonar and DownVü scanning sonar. DownVü provides a nearly photographic view of objects and structure below the boat and offers excellent resolution and target separation in both freshwater and saltwater.

In addition, the new echoMAP 70 and 90 series have built-in SideVü technology, granting the ability to see what is located to both sides of the boat.

This series has a vibrant colour display which is available in 4-inch, 5-inch, 7-inch and 9-inch. The echoMAP series would be the perfect present for every kind of fisherman. 

Montana 600 Marine Bundle


Featuring Garmin’s durable and waterproof GPS handheld, the Montana 600 Marine Bundle (RRP £399.99) is the perfect gift for adventure seekers. Designed for use on the water, the Montana 600 has a 4” sunlight-readable touchscreen and is built to withstand the elements.

With a BlueChart g2 card for the UK and Ireland, the Montana 600 Marine Bundle is ideal for great days out on the water. With an array of compatible maps and mounts, Montana 600 isn’t limited to use at sea.



quatix (RRP £249.99) is Garmin’s signature marine GPS watch. Never before have fishermen been able to have all the information and capabilities that quatix provides, conveniently available on their wrists. 

The highly functional watch includes built-in remote capabilities, allowing fishermen to remotely control a Garmin autopilot from their wrist. The quatix also features an MOB activation function, which sends an automatic MOB alert to the chartplotter, should a crewmember wearing the watch fall overboard.

This advanced piece of wearable technology should be on every fisherman’s wrist this Father’s Day.
